Thinking about studying in Ireland? Why not think about Letterkenny Institute of Technology in Donegal? Giovana Gomes Boldrini shares her experience…

My parents have always encouraged me to strive for the best, and to do what is best for me whether or not everyone else is doing it. So, I decided to study in Ireland, where I imagined having greater opportunities in the future. I also believe that moving abroad take you out of your comfort zone and help to build a better picture for yourself of cultural norms and expectations.

So why Ireland? Ireland is now the only English speaking country in the Eurozone and has one of the best education systems in the world for Higher Education Achievements.

Ireland is quite small, and Irish people are the most friendly and hospitable people in the world. They will make you feel comfortable and “at home”.

Ireland’s worldwide reputation for quality education and commitment to excellence is sure to enhance your study experience abroad. By choosing Ireland, you will be joining thousands of other international students who are fulfilling their potential and living their dream in this beautiful and amazing island.

Why study at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT)?

I had been in Donegal a few times while living in Ireland and had heard really good things about LYIT, and that they are extremely receptive to international students. That’s all true.

The Institute has excellent facilities in all departments, such as laboratories, student support, careers office, sport and recreational facilities, medical centre, counselling service and excellent lectures, where students and staff work closely together.

LYIT is a inspirational place that attracts a mix of 3,000 students both from local area and from 31 different countries. This gives the Institute a vibrant array of cultures and activities on campus. The institute also as an International Society that gives you an opportunity to know all the international students and participate in trips and meetings.

The Institute is located in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, which offers you an amazing scenery and a lot of things to do. Also, if compared to the capital, Dublin, the living costs are cheaper and the city is safer.

In short, by choosing Letterkenny you will have the opportunity to live, study and progress your career in a wonderful place surrounded an amazing scenery.
